About the Collection
Anne Sylvain is a collection of one-of-a-kind and custom handbags and accessories noted for uncompromising craftsmanship, extraordinary materials and majestic distinction.
We start with the world's most valuable and artistically finished genuine alligator, ostrich, python and other luxury leathers. Each piece of leather when it comes to our studio is one of a kind, a piece of art in itself.
All handbag patterns are then laid out and arranged on the leather by hand to ensure that the unique beauty of every leather piece is highlighted in the corresponding handbag. Each item in the collection is assembled piece by piece, with the utmost attention to quality and detail, inside and out.
Anne Sylvain is designed in Seattle and Made in the USA.

Anne Sylvain is named to honor founder Patricia Raskin's inspiring grandparents. Patricia's grandmother Anne Raskin was an artist who exhibited her paintings, prints and sculpture at galleries and museums throughout the U.S. Her grandfather Silvan Galpern was a Manhattan lawyer and entrepreneur with an unmatched and contagious appreciation of quality and refinement.
Though she has been an artist since she can first remember, Patricia studied Chinese, business and law at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, USA, where she grew up. Patricia worked as an intellectual property and business lawyer for 17 years prior to founding Anne Sylvain.
